Welcome to the Financial Fairytales workshops. Your Students’ Union and The University of Lincoln has partnered with financial education specialists ‘WEALTH at Work’ to offer a unique opportunity to attend financial education workshops created specifically for students. There are sessions running three times throughout the academic year. 


Why are these sessions important?

Managing money whilst at University has become increasingly challenging for students across the UK.  The impact of making mistakes will not only impact your student life, but could stay with you when you start your career. Graduating from University is likely to be your focus; however avoiding financial problems and finding your dream job when you graduate are likely to be equally important.


These sessions count towards your Lincoln Award…

The Lincoln Award is open to all students currently studying at the University of Lincoln. You can start the award at any point and must complete it before graduation. It is highly advisable to start the award as soon as possible to ensure you secure a place at the compulsory session required.

Every two Financial Fairytale workshops you attend counts towards one of your Lincoln Award Chosen Activities.
